P.S. The Weather is Here. Wish You Were Beautiful 

You’re on holiday! But a vacation is only as good as the bragging rights it gives you. Social media photos? Too overdone. Tell your friends how much fun you’re having IRL with the ultimate in AVENUE-approved stationery. Château d’Esclans—the French estate behind your favorite pink drink—has partnered with renowned stationery engravers Dempsey & Carroll on the Whispering Angel correspondence cards. With white paper and rosé-colored ink, the cards can be personalized with a name or monogram. SWAK!


Think Globally, Act Locally

At her 70th birthday celebration last month, Donna Karan said that, “My birthday wish is to travel the world and work with artisans.” She does just that through her Urban Zen Foundation, which supports cultural preservation through initiatives like bringing vocational education and opportunities to local artisans in Haiti. Shopping at Urban Zen is just one of many opportunities to give back. Volunteer at a favorite nonprofit. Donate to a passion project. Show support for your neighbors during Small Business Saturday. The holiday season will be here and gone before we know it, but doing good is always in style.


Do Not Disturb

They say that making your bed every day will change your life. But will looking at photos of beds? If you’re prone to wanderlust, then the answer is: absolutely. Set to be released November 13 is The World’s Sexiest Bedrooms, published by luxury travel company Mr. & Mrs. Smith in celebration of its 15th anniversary. The book pays tribute to romantic rooms across the globe, shot by photographer Polly Brown. Here’s to your next bedtime story.


Staycation, All I Ever Wanted

Can’t get away for the holidays? Then take the opportunity to enjoy all that New York City has to offer with a staycation. Have a zen moment at The Chatwal in Midtown, as the hotel has partnered with celebrity yoga guru Eddie Stern for in-room yoga courtesy of the new “pause and take a breath” app. In-person, one-on-one private classes are also available. If cardio is more your speed, check into Arlo NoMad, which will host Elements Fitness Studio’s signature barre classes on Tuesdays. And Arlo SoHo has debuted a courtyard apple orchard for guests to pick through the fall. If you’re really ready for the holiday spirit, take the family to the Lotte New York Palace, which has a special partnership with the Rockettes.
